Thanks for the advice. I've removed the entries from Startup Organizer. I do scan every week with Ad-Aware, Spyware Doctor and PC-Cillin and they didn't remove the entries even though they've been there for a while.
Although you removed the startup registry entry you still need to do a thorough scan for the bad file it was pointing to.
I suggest you perform at least one of these online virus scans: [Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.] BitDefender Online Scanner. <- Add a check by "Autoclean". F-Secure Online Scanner. <- Be sure to follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation. (also checks for rootkits).
